Formerly known as 'Buckely Hill Cottage outhouse to Buckley Hill Cottage', now known as 'Buckley Hill Cottage'. Buckley Hill Cottage is a detached cottage, formerly two cottages with outhouse, dating from at least the 17th century. The building is rendered and whitewashed with a weatherboarded eastern gable, thatched roof and brick stacks.
The building is present on the Ordnance Survey 1889 First Edition Map occupying a larger footprint than the current building on the site. This footprint extends further to the east and the building was divided into two properties. A stone rubble outhouse was attached to the east of the building which was demolished in the 1970s.
Buckley Hill Cottage remains a good example of vernacular building and retains a significant proportion of historic fabric.
